Annie Young Remains Missing, Police Regroup Their Efforts to Find Her

Twenty-three-year-old Anisha Young remains missing over a week after she was last seen catching a cab on the entertainment strip.  With every day that passes by, the glimmer of hope that the young woman may still be alive continues to fade.  But her loved ones aren’t giving up the search for her just yet.  Earlier today, they met with Deputy Commissioner Chester Williams and Assistant Superintendent Alejandro Cowo to re-strategize their efforts.  On December eighth, Young attended a Christmas party that was being held for employees of Voyse International.  It is reported that she had gotten into an altercation with her boyfriend prior to leaving in a taxi.

“We have received a number of leads in respect of this matter, all of which we have followed with the assistance of the family members.  You would know that the family members have been aggressively out there conducting searches on the Philip Goldson Highway, through the Boom Road, as well as the Maskall Road area, and so far every lead that has been received has been followed and turned out to be futile. As you would know, time is running out.  We’re hoping that she is still alive somewhere.  So we’re expecting the worst but at the end of the day we are still hoping for the best.  I would want to appeal to any member of the public who may have information that they believe could assist the police as well as the family members of Ms. Young to bring closure to this unfortunate situation, to please come forward and share those information.  Regardless of trivial or simple it may sound, it might more than likely be the final piece to the puzzle that we’re trying to solve.”



“In your experience as an investigator, given the time that has passed, how likely is it that we may find her alive sir?”


Chester Williams

“Well, it is very unlikely, unless it is that she may have moved somewhere else unknowing to her family members which at this time I can say we have no evidence to suggest that that is what had occurred.  But nonetheless, I remain optimistic and hoping that if or when she is found that it will be some satisfaction to the family members.”


A reward of thirty thousand dollars has been offered for information on her whereabouts; the family of Anisha is getting assistance from Jose Luis Espat who has been engaged in searches for missing persons.

    That boyfriend did a great job hiding the body.
    He should work for the mafia.
